PRE-PURCHASE INSPECTION EXPLAINED

 

A Pre Purchase Inspection from a reputable company really can provide peace-of-mind, typically for less than the cost of an annual service.

 

The benefits of having a Pre-Purchase Inspection before buying a used car include:

  1. It will confirm if the car is roadworthy
  2. It will advise you whether the car is safe to drive
  3. It will verify  whether you are paying a fair price for the car

 

Things to consider when thinking about Pre-Purchase Iinspection

  1. Make sure that any company that you are going to approach to carry out your Pre-Purchase Inspection is reputable.  Often Independent Inspection Companies are recommended by Car Owner Clubs , which is a good starting point.
  2. Remember that any inspection is not an open-ended guarantee.  Think of it as a tool to help you decide whether to go ahead with the purchase.
  3. Take a look at who offers this service – The AA and RAC offer two different levels of inspection (and the AA offers a discount to its members).
  4. Try and find customer testimonials which will help you select the right company to carry out the inspection.
  5. Look at using a specialist inspection company for high value, classic, sports and performance cars.

 

A Pre-Purchase Inspection is particularly advisable if you are considering purchasing:

  1. a classic car
  2. a high-value car
  3. an older car
  4. a sports / performance car
  5. a car from a Specialist
  6. a car via a private or vendor purchase
  7. a car from an Auction House

 

In summary, if you don’t feel comfortable then don’t feel pressured to purchase the car. Walk away, there are thousands of cars offered for sale every day in the UK and another one matching your requirements will come up for sale soon.

 

If you need assistance or guidance in where to buy you car from please get in touch and one of our team will provide you with free and invaluable advice.
